Butt Implants or Brazilian Butt Lift? (photo)

Q: Based on my pictures, what procedure do you recommend for butt augmentation? I am looking into butt implants, I do want a prominent butt, something like a Kim Kardashian butt. I do not think that I have enough fat to do any fat transfers.

A:  My favorite option for buttock enhancement is transfer of your own fat to your butt.  However, I agree, you are thin and probably don’t currently have enough fat to create the dramatic projection you are seeking.  Your options are gaining 10-15 lbs prior to the Brazilian Butt Lift (fat transfer to the butt) or combining an implant with fat transfer.  I like fat transfer because it looks and feels natural and because it offer a lot of flexibility – I can inject the fat in different places to create different looks. If gaining weight is difficult for you, please consider combing the two procedures.
